EFNA Statement in Support of Ukraine

It is with deep concern and enormous sadness that we at EFNA regard the unprecedented military aggression against Ukraine. While EFNA remains an apolitical organisation representing pan-European neurology patient groups, we refute the use violence of any kind in settling disputes.

Support for UkraineWe appeal for an immediate cessation of hostilities in Ukraine and call for a peaceful resolution. Life in a war zone directly endangers patients, their families and healthcare professionals. Disruption to the safe and effective delivery of treatment and care is an added burden to those affected by neurological conditions.

We plead for peace during this difficult time, and EFNA remains available to facilitate communication and advocate for the health and safety of our members and the patients they serve across Europe.
